With winter just around the corner is it important to familiarize yourself on the process of commercial snow plowing. An unplowed driveway or parking lot inhibits customers and employees from accessing your business. The process of snow removal can also be dangerous and you do not want to link yourself to any liabilities that may ensue from having your own personal perform the task. The best time to plow is right after the snow falls. On heavier days, going by this rule is not as easy, but if you left snow sit too long it can get hard or on the contrary turn slushy. The following are our plowing tips the bare in mind this winter season:

Pre-Plowing:
